This past Wednesday, the New York City *BSD User Group and New York PHP
hosted a holiday party with hundreds of attendees.
The event, entitled the New York Technical Community Holiday Party was
held in an exclusive space in Manhattan's Soho, where the attendees
networked, spoke with the sponsors and of course drank enormous
quantities of beer and wine.
The event was free, and was sponsored by Tech Web/CMP Publishing, New
York Internet, O'Reilly and Associates, Source Labs, Wiley, Usenix,
Zend, Pilosoft, Cyber X Designs, Penguin Netwerx, LoftMail/Biz
Integrators, TechVenue.com and NYC Wireless, and of course BSD
Mall/Daemon News. The Soho Apple Store donated a 20 gig iPod and
General Computer and Services donated a killer video card for a raffle.
A collection was also taken for the OpenBSD Hackathon to be held in May
Attendees represented firms from IBM, AT&T, Goldman Sachs to small
consulting operations. The event officially ended until 10:30 pm, but
the last of the party-goers staggered home from the after-after-party
at 4 am or so.
Some pictures of the event are posted on the NYC*BUG site in the
Gallery section under NYTCHP.
